LONDON, UK – 9 April 2014 (PRESS RELEASE): The IDPF is pleased to announce the launch of its new microsite –, the Community and News site for all things EPUB.

“IDPF is launching EPUBZone to broaden information resources for our members and the publishing industry at large" said Bill McCoy, Executive Director, IDPF. "Our main website will continue to focus on IDPF's work, including ongoing development of the EPUB standard, while the complementary focus of EPUBZone will be as a clearinghouse and global community for EPUB adopters and users, with an emphasis on practical information and real-world solutions.”

EPUBZone is a resource available to everyone in the publishing industry, providing a central forum for information, discussion, latest news and details of events about EPUB, the globally adopted digital publication standard. The initial focus is EPUB 3, the latest version of the standard, with articles about capabilities and best practice for creating EPUB 3 compatible content and a showcase gallery of freely downloadable sample material. In addition, there is also specific information for developers including specification updates and plans for the future.

Get involved and stay in touch! We welcome all news stories and updates of your experiences with EPUB - please share these with our community. Follow us on twitter - @EPUB3zone and help us to make this a useful and vibrant site for all EPUB users.
